Trump Wants Pentagon To Stage Military Parade Down Pennsylvania Avenue

08 February 2018

"I don't know", Kilmeade said, before admitting, "It seems like a waste of money".

A number of retired high-ranking military officials have spoken out about Trump's orders for the Pentagon to begin planning a big parade, likely in Washington, D.C., since it was reported Tuesday evening by the Washington Post. "We'll send them to the White House for a decision".

The parade, one of a number of parades and celebratory events held in the wake of the war, was reportedly the largest victory celebration since the end of the Second World War. He also suggested the president could visit Fort Bragg, where Reed served when he was in the Army.

Mattis spoke at the White House on Wednesday, stressing the military need for a stable budget.

The Washington Post was the first to break the story, saying that Trump, who campaigned on a theme of "Make America Great Again", wants to hold an extensive military parade, replete with soldiers marching and armored vehicles - similar to military parades that have been held in China, Russia and North Korea. He called that parade "one of the greatest he'd ever seen".

The inspiration for Trump's push is last year's Bastille Day celebration in Paris, which the president attended in July as a guest of French President Emmanuel Macron.

"I think we're all aware in this country of the President's affection and respect for the military", Defense Secretary James Mattis said during the White House press briefing Wednesday.

Trump was French President Emmanuel Macron's guest on Bastille Day a year ago, and later called the French military parade he witnessed "one of the greatest parades" he had ever seen.

On Jan. 19, 2017, the day before he was inaugurated, Trump told the Post in an interview, "We're going to show the people as we build up our military, we're going to display our military".

"Eisenhower said absolutely not, we are the preeminent power on Earth", Beschloss says, recalling Eisenhower's response. "It's way too far speculation to start weighing in on whether or not we think certain things are appropriate when nothing's been decided and it's literally in a brainstorming session", she said. And Presidents Kennedy and Truman had military equipment at their respective inaugurations during the Cold War.

That's what the D.C. Council, Washington's local legislative body, had to say about President Trump's plans to host a military celebration in the nation's capital.
